Updating Pet Microchip Details

Micro-chipping in Pets

We are still reading reports of dogs being found in Swindon that are not micro-chipped, or with out of date microchip details. If your dog is over 8 weeks of age, it should be micro-chipped. Please don’t think that if your dog is not likely to ‘get out’ that there is no need to have them micro-chipped. It is now a legal requirement. We read at least half a dozen reports of missing or found cats each day. If you are a cat owner, please consider getting your cats micro-chipped, especially if you have a cat that can’t keep a collar on, or one that is prone to wandering off for a day or so like the story of Six Dinner Sid (he ‘kept’ six owners!’). Many finders consider a cat that visits regularly for food a hungry stray! If this is your cat, you could find them re-homed by a well-meaning cat lover.

Making Changes to Microchip Details

From 6th April 2016, all puppies and dogs over the age of 8 weeks must be mirco-chipped. It will also be an offence not to have your dog's microchip details up to date. Whilst the new law applies to dogs and puppies only, we strongly advise the micro-chipping of cats and the same links apply for those wishing to change the details of other micro-chipped pets.
